Step Lines

[* black] iPad 3 Repairability Score: '''2 out of 10''' (10 is easiest to repair)
[* green] The LCD is really easy to remove once the front panel is gone.
[* green] The battery is not soldered to the logic board, making the replacement process a tad less difficult.
[* red] Just like the iPad 2, the front panel is glued to the rest of the device, greatly increasing the chances of cracking the glass when trying to remove it.
[* red] Gobs, gobs, and gobs of adhesive hold down everything in place, including the prone-to-start-a-fire-if-punctured battery.
[* red] The LCD has foam sticky tape adhering it to the front panel, increasing chances of it being shattered during disassembly
[* red] You can't access the front panel's connector until you remove the LCD.
